PostureScreen – Your First 2-View Posture Assessment
Your First PostureScreening
The following tutorial videos will demonstrate how to setup and properly perform a PostureScreen exam.
Please note for an effective assessment, it is recommended to have the client in the most revealing clothing as possible. For example, tight gym clothing and sports top for women is preferred over clients wearing a baggy t-shirt. If the clothes are baggy, we recommend using clothes pins to ‘tighten up’ the clothes against the body, to better reveal the body margins for analysis. However, gym attire where body margins are clearly defined is obviously preferred. In the following example, the client is in clothing, but it is still suitable to assess landmarks. For clinical use, tight fitting clothing is recommended for proper, uniform and reliable assessments. In the following video, the clothing is not optimal but used simply to show the user how to work through the application.
Next please make sure to properly crop the image of the client as shown by dragging the yellow box line to the top of their skull and then bottom of their toes in the front view, and top of their skull and bottom lateral inferior aspect of their right foot (as this is the one closest to the camera when the client is facing to the right side.) By doing this you will ensure consistent linear calibration of measurements as well as consistent pre/post magnification of photograph for the reports. If you fail to calibrate correctly, you can introduce linear distance errors in your linear measurements. The reason is because we use the height of the client as a control for the calibration distance. If you have significant space below their feet and top of their head, you effectively told the software that distance is their height, which is an error. Be sure to not crop to merely their hair especially for those with certain hairstyles, rather the top of their skull.
